Please get the updated list from your coordinator. Texts from semester 1 are also used in semester 2. Most of the texts are available in an online format that your classmates can share with you once on the island. Many students prefer this as it provides an easier way to search and reference material. All required texts are available in the AUA Bookstore for prices similar to US prices, and current students will sell their texts during orientation, so it's fine to wait and see what texts you really want in textbook format. The library also carries the texts so should you want to view a physical page while studying you may do so. I hope that helps! I can't imagine trying to cram 15 medical texts into luggage.
